Hi Jacki,
From everything that I have been brought up on and been told after I've been an adult is all of Williams Co. and a few surrounding Countys, including In. and Mi., were in the Black Swamp. I found Hoytville on a map I have and it is in Wood Co. If you can get a map of Ohio, and find Toledo (Lucas Co.) on it (which is just below Detroit Mi.) Wood Co. is just below Lucas Co. As for Huron Co., I found it on a map also and it isn't very close to Where I have been told The Black Swamp is. If you know where Cedar Point is (which is on lake Erie and in Erie Co.), it is the Co. just below Erie Co. I hope I haven't confused you more. Just e/mail me if I did.
